A dazzling and elevated women’s ready-to-wear collection ~ MESTIZA NEW YORK was created and inspired by a shared Philippine-American heritage between co-founders Alessandra Perez-Rubio and Louisa Rechter. It is an female owned Asian and Latina, high end clothing company and brand.
The collection features luxurious designs at a contemporary price point and shines with statement pieces that are bold, elevated and elegant. Under the creative direction of Alessandra, the collection offers show-stopping styles characterized by gilt details, unexpected textures and bold silhouettes.
After yet another futile search for affordable couture-inspired dresses, Alessandra Perez-Rubio and Louisa Rechter launched Mestiza New York, a NYC-based special occasion brand that offers “stylish opulence, without the opulent price tag.” If you’re shopping for a dress to wear to a wedding or another important event, Mestiza New York just might be your new go-to brand.
As noted, one founder is from the Philippines, so it is an Asian owned company based in NYC. The clothes are sold online as well as in high end retail stores. if the price is too high, than find other high end Asian owned small businesses.
Available at select Neiman Marcus stores, NeimanMarcus.com, Bhldn, and specialty boutiques Felt, Julian Gold and more. The collection has also been spotted on the red carpet on chic fans including Kate Walsh, America Ferrera, and Jenna Elfman.
